Using your communication log, create a PowerPoint presentation explaining the factors that influence communication and interpersonal interactions (P3).
Environment our surroundings can influence the way that we communicate for example if there is a lot of background noise then it’s hard to hear what someone is telling you and also its hard to concentrate on what you came to tell the other person e.g. important problem, because you easily get distracted.it is also hard to make sense of other people’s facial expressions if you can’t see their faces because of the poor lighting. If the room seating is positioned where people cannot see each other faces then it will hard for them to communicate with each if they can’t each other’s faces. Most of the time people feel uncomfortable if they are too closes or too far away. Also if a person is been interviewed in a room which is either too hot or too cold the person being interviewed will only make a brief comment on a question asked this also he/she will feel tired or stressed due to the temperature of the room.
The environment plays a vital role in the effectiveness of communication aids. For example hearing aids will increase background noise as well as the voice of the speaker so that’s why noisy environment may be hard and unpleasant for someone who is using hearing aid. Good lighting will help those people who support their understanding by reading lips. The time limits on how long you can use a room can also interfere with communication for example if you take more than the time you were given in the room someone could just come in the room and interrupt you communication.
Barriers to communication: a barrier blocks things and stops them getting through’. There are different types of communication barrier that stops communication from being effective. Where the first and second types of barriers exist, it will…...

...Equality is ensuring individuals or a group of individuals are treated fairly and equally. There are laws in place to ensure that this happens. In correspondence with the law, organisations have equality policies to make sure that everyone is treated correspondingly. In a health and social care setting such as a mental care home it is important that all individuals are being treated the same, whether from a different race or different belief or their gender, as well as holding to account on providing their individual needs, because not all of them have the same mental illness/condition. Diversity is all about acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual has something different making them unique. These can be along the range of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities and religious beliefs as well as other beliefs and ideologies.

They also serve as policies and objectives in government. For example, a principle is having concern for the wellbeing of others. Business dictionary http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/principles.html [30/09/14] Socialisation comes in two forms: primary and secondary. Primary socialisation starts at birth and finishes by the time the child reaches school. For instance, learning to crawl, walk and talk are all taken place during this period, we also learn about the norms in society like manners and how to behave in public . This learning only occurs in the family. Secondary socialisation begins after the age of five until death, this only occurs outside of the family. An example of secondary socialisation is learning to drive. As we get older it takes us longer to learn and understand things, and we learn thing through agents of socialisation. We are controlled in ways; this is called agents of socialisation. This comes in four forms: school, family, peer groups and the media. The family is the most important form as it’s from them we learn about our gender roles, language, habits and beliefs. The next most......

For example, the government provides education for the children of the family, which in turn pays taxes on which the state depends to keep itself running. That is, the family is independent upon the school to help children grow up to have good jobs so that they can raise and support their own families. In the process, the children become law-abiding, taxpaying citizens, who in turn support the state. If all goes well and to plan, parts of the society produce order, stability and productivity. If all doesn’t go to plan, then parts of the society then must adapt to recapture a new order, stability and productivity. For example, during a financial recession with its high rates of unemployment and inflation, social programs are trimmed or cut. Schools offer fewer programs. Then a new social order, stability and productivity occur. Functionalists also believe that society is held together by social consensus, in which members of the society agree upon, and......

...UNIT 3 – HEALTH, SAFETY AND SECURITY IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE P1 – Explain potential hazards and the harm that may arise from each in a health and social care setting. Hazards are referred to as anything that can cause harm to someone. Hazards can be found everywhere, for example, people will be able to spot hazards when travelling to work and when they are present in the workplace. Additionally, there are three main types of hazard, these are health hazards, safety hazards and security hazards. A health hazard would be a risk of somebody becoming ill from an incident. A safety hazard would associate with someone becoming injured, however a safety hazard could also relate to an incident that can be caused by broken equipment or a damaged building. A security hazard would be the risk of an incident where for example information has been exposed, intruders entering a property whereby a child might be abducted from a school or even a patient discharges themselves from a health and social care setting without consent. Employers, employees and professionals overall, in particular health and social care professionals have to prevent risks that may arise from hazards in order to keep themselves, other service providers and service users safe from illness, injury or any potential harm overall; every individual within the workplace has to be kept safe from harm (even cleaners and caterers). Although there should be a balance between exposing individuals to unreasonable risks and......

...P1: Behaviourist Approach. An introduction into this perspective is that it studies how conditioning, reinforcement and social learning influence behaviour. It does this through laboratory experiments and observations. In witch they use animals and humans. It is a scientific approach to measure behaviour and investigate how behaviour is learned. They argue that the environment shapes behaviour. Also argued that genetics and cognition are deemed as unimportant in determining behaviours. There are three main theories to this perspective which are: Classical conditioning Operant conditioning Social learning. Classical conditioning: Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) was working with dogs to investigate their digestive systems; he noticed that one dog began to salivate when Pavlov assistant entered the room with food. Pavlov thought the dog had learned to associate the assistant with food. This meaning food automatically lead to response of salivation, this is called an unconditioned response. The food was the unconditioned stimulus. As the production of saliva was automatic and not learnt. With this, an unconditioned stimulus leads to an unconditioned response. Pavlov then introduced a bell at feeding time, the bell was a conditioned response as the dog then produced saliva on the bell ringing as the dog associated the bell with feeding time. This happened over several trails and then the dog learned this. Eventually it began to salivate when only the bell was rung and no food......

...P4- You are in the activity room of the care home and one of your clients starts experiencing severe chest pains and falls to the floor. They are having a cardiac arrest. A cardiac arrest happens when your heart stops pumping blood around our body. The first thing you should do in this emergency is check for danger. You should see if they have fallen on an object that needs to be moved or if there is anyone in the room that needs to be removed. Once you are sure the area is safe you must call for help. Call other workers to the scene and call 999 immediately so that a professional can reach you as soon as possible. The worker should be first aid trained and therefore should know how to perform CPR. Even if you haven’t been trained in CPR with rescue breathing, you can still use hands-only CPR.   You must maintain a patient's dignity at all times. Block off the area and get anyone out of the room that does not need to be there. Although the client may not be conscious you should take their personal needs and wishes into consideration. They may be embarrassed by the incident and may not want others to see them. Before you begin CPR you should tilt the patient's head back so that the airways are clear and take their pulse to check if they are breathing. In this case, the patient is not breathing. Firstly, you should perform chest compressions. This will pump the heart by external cardiac massage to keep the circulation going until the ambulance arrives. To do this you......

...Unit 1 Developing Effective Communication in Health and Social Care P1. EXPLAIN THE ROLE OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION AND INTERPERSONAL INTERACTION IN A HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE CONTEXT. Effective communication is when someone is sharing information, thoughts and feelings between people through speaking, writing and body language with the message being easily understood. In a health and social care setting an example is when a nurse in a hospital it speaking to a patient about their diagnosis and the patient is able to understand their illness and how it can be treated without being confused. Effective communication is also important in a health and social care setting as it allows the health care worker to perform their role effectively, which allows them to work along with their colleges and efficiently with patients and also their highest capability. Also the benefits of effective communication helps strengthen relationships with service users, families and colleagues, helps to carry out appropriate reporting and recording, develops confidence and self-esteem, create a good rapport and helps to make sure the needs of service users are met. Interpersonal interaction is how you interact with someone, how you spread feelings through verbal and non-verbal communication. It’s not only about speaking, but the language used, how it has been said/ tone of voice and the non-verbal message sent, for example through facial expressions, gestures and body language.......

...For this piece of coursework I will be describing how anti-discriminatory practice is promoted in health and social care settings. I will also be discussing the difficulties that may arise when implementing anti-discriminatory practice There are many ways in which to promote anti-discriminatory practice that are effective and have minimal chance of failure, the first way is staff training. This can be effective as it gives the workers an insight in how this practice is shown and ways to identify it, it informs them of how to prevent it and stop it from happening again. Training gives them a clear structure to follow to deal with this practice and how to avoid breaking the law. Training also puts the worker in the client’s shoes and shows them the effects of discrimination in hope to deter them from doing it again. Another way health organizations promote anti-discriminatory practice is by making sure they are welcoming for everyone; they do this by commutating to people in their preferred way whether it be Arabic to sign language. If they are unable to provide this service they should find someone who can, i.e. a translator. They should also take in to consideration the different beliefs and values the service users may have, this would be beneficial as it makes the user feel valued and respected, and they are made to feel s if they are at the heart of service. For example a client who is Muslim, letting them practice their religion as it is a religious requirement to......

...P1 The behaviourist perspective focuses solely on observing human behaviour; behaviourist psychologists believe that new born babies are born with a ‘clean slate’ – that we adopt our means for behaviour by learning. Pavlov was a behavioural psychologist and he was conducting an experiment on how the production of saliva helps dogs to digest food. However, Pavlov found that his dog would sometimes salivate before his food arrived. This lead him to realise that the dog had learnt to associate his food with other stimulus; for example reaching for the dog food or picking up his bowl. Pavlov then began to ring a bell whenever the dog would receive food, and eventually found that the dog would produce saliva whenever the bell was rung. This is known as classical conditioning, which Pavlov applied to humans. This is when a stimulus creates a new response which is learned by association. To begin with, Pavlov’s dog innately reacted to receiving food by producing saliva; here, the food is an unconditioned stimuli and the saliva produced is an unconditioned response. However, when another stimulus (the neutral stimuli) such as the bell, is added to the unconditioned stimuli, this also creates the unconditioned response. With consistency the new stimulus will create the conditioned response; therefore producing saliva when the bell is rung. Here, the bell has become a conditioned stimuli and the salivating has become a conditioned response. American psychologist Watson conducted an......

One of the members of the suffrogets even threw themselves in front of a horse and carriage. This was a dramatic act which led to the women in the past start to gain rights; the beggining of equal opportunity and equal rights. However now in the present every human being has equal rights. Meaning every individual can work regardless of diversity. The legislation which puts this in place is the provision in the equality act 2010; which entitles a women doing equal work with a man in the same employment to equality in pay and other terms and conditions. In work places in the present there is a health and safety act which protects employees. One of the proctections which the present has compared to the past is the appropriate head, ear and foot gear. Another difference is there are more legisaltions, laws and acts to protect humans whilst in employment. The Employment protection legislation includes all types of employment protection measures, whether grounded primarily in legislation, court rulings, collectively bargained conditions of emplyment or customary practice. There is also alot more job variety in different areas of work. This gives more opportunity to find a place of employment. In the past the sweages are nothing like it is in the present.
